Power Searching with Google

Take advantage of all Google's features

This course is taught by Dr. Dan Russell, a research scientist at Google.
His research demonstrates that while Google is really easy to start using, many people do not use it to its full advantage. Concepts presented here could be used with students in a class setting, or assigned as a self paced unit.

The course is composed of six classes:
  • How Google works
  • Extending what you know
  • Advanced techniques
  • Finding facts faster
  • Checking your facts
  • Putting it all together
Each class consists of five lessons, which includes a short video (with text transcript) followed by a hands-on activity to try the techniques discussed.
